Luke Shaw is clearly determined to make sure that he's completely focused ahead of Man United v Tottenham
Luke Shaw has taken to social media to tell Jose Mourinho that he is keeping his head down and staying focused ahead of Manchester United’s crunch clash with Tottenham on Saturday.
The left-back has struggled to hold down a regular spot in the first team for Manchester United since Mourinho’s appointment at Old Trafford back in the summer of 2016.
Indeed, Shaw has struggled with fitness issues in recent months and has only made two appearances so far this season – both in the League Cup.
The 22-year-old came off the bench to play for the final three minutes of Manchester United’s 2-0 League Cup victory over Swansea in midweek.
And the England international is clearly determined to prove a point to Mourinho by keeping himself focused as he bids to earn a regular place in the first team.
Shaw posted the picture above of himself training with Henrikh Mkhitaryan on Instagram and wrote the caption: “Good session today, staying focused 💪🏻 #Trainhard #MUFC.”
Manchester United head into Saturday’s game looking to get back to winning ways in the Premier League after their surprise defeat by Huddersfield last weekend left them five points behind leaders Manchester City.
The Red Devils have not won the title since the 2012-13 campaign under Sir Alex Ferguson.
